Dear, Mr. Weed,
I just started dating this woman, and--like in the movie Annie Hall--she only likes to have sex when she's high.
I'm in my 40s, she's 10 years younger. I haven't used marijuana since college and have a lot of anxiety--I'm a high strung sort of guy--about trying it again. But she's great, and the sex is great, and I don't want to come across as an old fogey who isn't down for new things. So, basically, I want to smoke on my own and see how it goes first. Where can I get some weed, and what type of weed should I try to keep me relaxed and stave off anxiety. -Horny Weed
Your girl is smart. Sex and weed go together like, well, sex and weed. Since marijuana helps people relax and can heighten the senses (especially the sense of touch), many people find that a toke or two will get them to a higher level of sensuality. The “smokie-pokie” is one of my favorite games. And the cool thing is you don’t have to smoke a lot. A ceremonial toke with your girl to get the festivities started shouldn’t get you too high to enjoy yourself.
I talked to Lisa “Mamakind” Kirkman, author of the book. “Sex Pot: The Marijuana Lover's Guide to Gettin' It On”, and this is what she had to say about the best kinds of cannabis for carnal pleasure:
“I would recommend different strains for different kinds of sex: an intimate lovemaking session might benefit from an indica dominant strain like Blueberry to relax the body and mind, but not put you to sleep. Pre-rolling for an orgy? Try Blueberry's mostly-sativa sister, Flo. She'll get you going, energizing your body and mind, without making anyone all freaky-deaky.”
You probably aren’t gonna have an orgy, but it’s good stuff to know just in case. I would also suggest looking into a high-CBD strain like Harlequin, as it has been shown to decrease anxiety. Cottonmouth is the only drawback. Lisa recommends fruit and water; I like Starbursts and Tootsie Rolls. Have fun.
